About phil Blech Wien

There are brass ensembles in many countries, but phil Blech Wien (the name is an informal way of saying "Vienna Brass Philharmonic") has a uniquely Viennese flavor. This ensemble, with percussion, draws on deep Viennese traditions in its music-making. The goal, in the words of the players, was "to maintain and foster the Viennese brass and percussion tradition, but also give that tradition new impetus." The musicians were drawn from not only the Vienna Philharmonic but also from other respected Viennese orchestras; all studied in Vienna and were deeply rooted there. The players recruited Anton Mittermayr as conductor. Phil Blech Wien released its self-titled debut album in 2013. In 2019, phil Blech Wien made its debut at the Vienna Musikverein hall with organist Olivier Latry; after a pandemic-caused delay, that performance was released as the album Live from Vienna in 2022.
